On 5-15-70, they played Friend of the Devil twice, but that was once in the early show and once in the late show. I'm sure that's happened with other early/late shows.

What I'm looking for is their forgetting they'd played a song already, and playing it again in the same show. In 30 years, can that really never have happened even once? I don't know of one.

And of course, I'm not talking about a reprise of Playin', The Other One, etc. I'm looking for a second, from-the-beginning rendition.

I believe that same 5-15-70 they did I Know You Rider as an acoustic version in one show and as part of a China>Rider in the other. Not sure that counts.

Some of us were grokking JGB 8-29-87 last night and the song I'm Troubled appears twice in the acoustic set. Not sure if they repeated or an extra track snuck into the recording.

I think it was 4/1/80 when they did Promised Land twice for an opener. The first, with everyone playing the wrong intstrument, then again playing the right one. It's actually a good April fools joke.

4-2-70:

Casey Jones, Good Lovin', High Time, Black Peter. Both shows.

Mind you, yes, these were two show evenings. BUT even this was extremely rare--and FOUR songs?!!!

yeah, here's a show that starts with Lovelight, then later Pigpen and the boys do it again, supposedly because late arrivers missed hearing it.

Hi Charlie - The setlist does not reflect it here, but in the files there are 2 Cumberlands for this date. I just streamed 'em both. What gives?? Mis-labeled?

http://www.archive.org/details/gd70-05-15.early-late.sbd.97.sbeok.shnf

Deadbase X(Deadbase VI had no idea WTF happened that nite!) says 5/15/50a contains acoustic Cumberland, while 5/15/70b contains electric Cumberland.

Which makes, I assume, early and late shows. So same night, different show? Does that count?:)

PS. I trust CM over Deadbase!

Lovelight - twice.




Reviewer: dr. flashback - - September 28, 2005
Subject: Dosed Again !

This show has been widely traded for some time, and it usually shows up in the 1969 top ten in Deadbase surveys. One listen and it's easy to see why!
Fans of Pigpen - this is the show for you. Basically a "Dark Star sandwich" with 2, count 'em TWO Lovelights as the "bun".
They burst out of the starting gate with Lovelight #1, full of fire and funk, and it's obvious that Jerry is ready to cook tonight! A gutsy Me & My Uncle follows, then a tight version of Doin That Rag with some nice Jerry soloing at the end. Then the Friend of Mine, not usually a standout, is here just played to perfection. A chill-producing version where even the vocals and harmonies are spot on. Only the Byrds could top this version, or maybe not !
An early, tentative rendition of Dire Wolf points forward to Workingman's and the Dead-about-to-be.
Then, it's time to put on your space helmet and achive orbit. Not the longest Dark Star, but certainly one of the best for 1969. Different themes and styles explored by Jerry make this one rather unique. Plenty of texture to keep your ears busy - bells, gongs, backwards-sounding guitar, feedback and tasty jamming by all.
St. Stephen really smokes, and here includes the William Tell seque into an incredible Eleven. This is definitely one of the best for 1969, tight and rhythmically complex with sparkling runs by Phil and Jerry.
There aren't many great SBD's from the summer of 1969 available yet- all the more reason to download this one! The sound quality is B+, a little muddy but well balanced. Highly recommended!
cheers,
Dr. Flashback :-)

Subject: BEST SHOW OF '69 HANDS DOWN

The last reviewer said this is not the best "Eleven" but one of the better. Are you kidding me? This probably is the best "Eleven" I've ever heard. They go OFF! And Jerry just keeps coming up with mind melting runs up and down the fret. This is "goosebump" material. They are just charged. The whole Lovelight wrapping throughout the show is rare. I can't think of another show where they replicate this. I wouldn't be surprised if they clean this one up and release it as a Dick's Picks. If anything you have to listen to "The Eleven". SMOKING!!!!
